Quilt With Us

I've been sitting on a secret for a week or so, and it's been killing me! Last Monday (day before my surgery), I accepted a position as Director of Marketing & Business Development at Martingale & Co, aka That Patchwork Place books. You might have heard of them? :) They asked me to wait until they could announce it to staff and today I got the all clear. 


I'll be moving to the Seattle area very soon, and my first day at work is June 6th!!!! Know anyone that wants to rent my house?

Oh yes, and my knee is healing nicely. Still hobbling around, but making progress every day.

Congratulations Karen! Keep up the wonderfully creative work; that patchwork place is my favorite source for Q books. Betty

Karen, I haven't been on QWU for a long time.  I sort of lost heart after you were let go at Connecting Threads.  Last night I was talking to Annie and she said you had a new job.  I wanted to come on and congratulate you.  So Congratulations on your new job.  I am so happy for you.  As I sit here typing at the computer, I am full of goosebumps.  I am so happy for you.  take care and keep in touch.  Did you have a knee replacement or just a scope.  I shouldn't say just a scope but it sure heals a little faster.  Looking forward to hearing how your job is going after you begin on June 6.  Hugs and love being sent your way.

Oh wow, Karen, good for you! How exciting! I get e mails from Martingale all the time. Say HI to Seattle for me. And to the Vashon/Southworth foot ferry! I sure don't miss that commute. Where are you going to live?
